The Università Bocconi International Advisory Council assists the Board in the definition of the University's international strategy. The Council brings together business leaders, policy makers and academics from Europe and the rest of the world. Its fundamental mission is to provide feedback on the projects proposed by the Rector and the Chief Executive, to suggest new avenues for strategic development and to guide new thinking on the University's future.
The Council is chaired by Antonio Borges, former Dean of INSEAD and Member of the Board and Executive Committee of Università Bocconi. It consists of prominent international figures who will be conveying their European and global vision to Bocconi.
Joining the global corporate managers and international academics on the IAC are leading Italian managers who are active in the internationalization of their businesses. Three representatives of Università Bocconi also sit on the International Advisory Council.
